To soak up the sun and take in some outside air, The Flora is a brilliant choice with their cute garden complete with astro turf and crates. Grab a cocktail and burger and get ready for heady summers in Cathays.

The Vulcan Lounge on Cathays' Wyverne Road offers everything you could possible want from a traditional British pub. The ambience created by the huge armchairs, detailed lampshades, candlelit tables and vintage paintings helps to enshrine an uncanny appreciation for the building's history within each visitor, while the quaint beer garden, framed by vine-covered walls, acts as a sanctuary, providing a spot to escape the bustle of the city. 

Boasting a stunning patio seating area on the pub's first floor, the Dock is a characterful pub sat in the heart of Cardiff's idyllic Mermaid Quay. With wood-panelled walls, vintage furniture and a range of impressive craft beers and whiskeys, there is a wonderfully rustic vibe running down the spine of this venue. During the hot summer months, unwind in the sunshine on the pub's elevated outdoor patio. Sleek and stylish, with stunning waterfront views, this is a truly unique Cardiff beer garden.

Nestled in the heart of Cardiff, the Pen & Wig is a beautiful looking pub that's built into the hustle and bustle of the city's busy roads. Only a short walk away from the ever-vibrant Queen Street, guests that walk past the lively bar will find the venue's cosy beer garden. Stocked full of large table umbrellas and with a refreshing open set up, it's easy to sit back here with your favourite pint on a sunny day and watch as the hours drift away into the crisp Welsh night. 

Although most of the Lansdowne's magic happens inside, this pub in the heart of Cardiff offer's its guests a secluded, cosy beer garden spot to unwind in and escape the daily riggers of urban life. If the lively bar - serving all the finest beers, fine wines, international spirits and gastro-pub cuisine - gets a bit much, escape to the hidden outdoor sanctuary and soak up some lovely vitamin D.
